From France

Post by Orpheedulogis » Sun May 02, 2021 7:07 am


I'm electronician (and programmer) but didn't use this kind of radio (I used some radio a long long time ago)!)
I just bought Baofeng DM-860 with programmation cable(didn't received yet).
My purpose is to be able to send text messages if needed, probably rarely audio messages in a country setting (houses >1km).
I read OpenGD77 was better for using Baofeng radios that's why I'm here.
So now I need to have simple/clear informations about modifications I had to do.

Thanks for help

OpenGD77 does not support text messages. So this firmware is probably not for you. Stay with the original firmware.
